The Reef House Resort & Spa Palm Cove History
This out of the ordinary resort hotel was built in 1958 by a local book-maker who initially used the property as his private home. A swimming pool builder was heavily indebted to the book maker and as a means to repay him, built North Queensland's best swimming pool which still remains at The Reef House Resort & Spa.
In 1970 the property was purchased by a syndicate and transformed into a restuarant with a few exclusive guest suites. In 1972, Brigadier The Hon. David Thomson, MC, RL, (later Federal Minister for Science & Technology) bought the property and named it The Reef House; it was operated as a guest house whereby they treated guests to personalised five star service where drinks from the bar were on an honour system and guests and staff mingled every evening. Although the resort has now grown to 69 rooms that spirit and service of The Reef House Resort & Spa has remained. Every guest staying at The MGallery Reef House Resort & Spa receives VIP treatment; an experience rarely found in up-market resorts.
Every night The Reef House Resort & Spa features 'twighlight hour'
as the sun slowly descends beneath the horizon leaving shadows of Palm trees and the transpiring hum of waves crashing on the sandy shore. It is at this time that guests make their way to the infamous Brigadier's Bar, where over drinks and tropical punch travellers and management share stories, experiences and thoughts. This truly unique experience at Brigadier's Bar works on an honour system reflecting the appreciated informality of The Reef House Resort & Spa.
